Services for Collaborative Genealogical Research


GenesONS Image Album Organiser (Gallery)

The GenesONS Image Album Organiser uses the popular open source Gallery and Gallery Remote software to allow you to easily create and maintain multiple albums of images.

The facilities provided by this GenesONS service component provide a more extensive and focused capability compared to the Image Gallery facilities within ONSshoebox and might be used to store and manage a wider range of everyday photographs with access provided to family members that are perhaps less interested in family history.

Additional image management facilities include automatic thumbnail creation, image resizing, rotation, captioning, searching and more. Albums and images can have view, edit, delete and other permissions defined per user, and the service is set up to allow you to manage large numbers of images.

This service component is available in a number of Subscription Packages and your users can access the service from a menu at a dedicated web site that is established for each subscription. The service provides the software fully installed with a dedicated MySQL database and is ready to use with an initial login/password for the group administrator. The group administrator can then add as many new users as required with defined permissions as well as creating the required Album structures. The widening group of users can then evolve and maintain the image data whilst GenesONS maintains the operational aspects of the system, including Gallery version management as new releases are made available. The usage of the service contributes to the Storage and Bandwidth Resource Limits that are aggregated across all service components within any particular Subscription Package.

The convenient Gallery Remote software allows any user with the appropriate permissions to easily upload large numbers of images in bulk. The software allows you to select folders of images on your PC and upload them in an un-attended manner to the online service.

Download the Gallery Remote software from here; this is a large 32MB installation software file for a Windows PC. You should save the download and then run it to install the software. Downloads, depending upon the type of connection you have to the internet, might take some time.
